    This is another thing I wrote. Again, I'm not worried about posts. I just need to get this off my chest. I don't know why I've been writing so much :blink: , but I have been... This one is to my best friend Nathan. He doesn't know I consider him my best friend and I know I treat him like crap a lot. But I love him to death, and he doesn't know how I truly feel.

    You have no clue
    What it's like to try to deal with
    This pain.
    As my heart pounds in my ears,
    I try to look at things in a positive
    Perspective.
    Nothing helps until I see
    The blood.
    The blood, the razor,
    They help me cope with this pain,
    As I slice my skin open,
    A wave of comfort washes over me.
    I feel nothing, see nothing,
    Am nothing.
    The blood begins to boil and as
    I see it bubbling over the edge of
    My skin I feel
    Awe, fear, happiness...
    I am reborn.
    I finally feel free,
    Free to let the tears flow,
    Free to let myself be me.
    The tears are not of sorrow,
    But of true happiness
    As I rip myself open.
    I am vulnerable
    As the pain begins to return.
    I return to the body which I never wanted,
    I return to the body I have hated all my life,
    I return to the people I love and hate,
    Even though everything else is shit
    The best part is,
    I get to return to you.

    thanks. i've never shown anyone what i've written before. it feels really good to get it out. my screen name was actually kind of an accident. my friend cheyenne and i were taking these gothic quizzes and it would give you your male and female gothic names at the end, i ended up with marquesa demona and lord byron. i loved the name lord byron and it's stuck as my nickname ever since. my friend cheyenne ended up with queen nocturna and some really weird name and so i am now lord byron and she's queen nocturna.
